I just finished my hour-long interview with Oxford University concerning their study of Mastodon and decentralized social media.
They were especially interested in what we’ve done here at Veganism Social, as we have our own fork with custom features that address common complaints such as content discoverability.
Veganism Social’s use case was exemplary of the benefits of decentralizion. Our moderation is uniquely anti-speciesist, and the community has a clear purpose beyond ‘general’.
My analyses of the technological and sociological benefits of decentralization are extensive. I (currently) have a deep understanding of Mastodon’s code-base, and how to use it. I also worked as a software developer for centralized social media, and now moderate a subreddit with 100k members.
I could not possibly exhaust myself of exhilarating insights to share.
Surely, the Oxford study will broaden awareness of how decentralized social media will benefit society.
Next time my wife asks me to stop info-dumping, I’ll banter that Oxford might think it’s worth listening to. 🤭
